#2**+1 **

Solve for a in terms of b

\(3a+4b=a-8b+24\)

You are asked to rearrange this so that you have 'a' out the front by itself. The other side can have not a's in it.

Follow these steps, one at a time, to get your answer.

1) take 1a away from BOTH sides

2) take 4b away from BOTH sides

3)Divide BOTH sides by the number in front of the a (which should be 2)

4) there might be a little tidying to do on the right side but the left side just has 'a' now. That is what you want

Come back with your working and the answer
